Villa Savoye, Poissy

(4.2/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Designed by famed Swiss architects Le Corbusier and his cousin, Pierre Jeanneret, Villa Savoye represents a modern architectural masterpiece open to the public. The Savoye family commissioned the house as a country retreat in 1928, and it was finished in the early 1930s. The home became Corbusier's best-known building from the era, as it exerted an enormous influence on the international modernism architectural movement through its design. During World War II, Nazis sent the family to a concentration camp and used the house for storage. After the war, the French government took ownership; it was designated a historical monument in 1965.

  • This is obviously a must-see for fans of modernist architecture but in my opinion it would benefit immensely from being furnished. Empty rooms tell us nothing about the way the living space would have...  more »
  • The villas of great architects are not that many: it is very interesting. Two small flats: missing photos (or simulation) of the villa furnished and home could use a little paint. Very nice home.

  • To do with speaker, very rewarding visit which lasted 90 minutes instead of an hour, a lot of details and a beautiful approach to the architecture of le Corbusier

  • A great place to visit for architecture fans, which worth the effort for a detour in the outskirts of Paris. Morning visit would be recommended to avoid the tourist flow. The house was reconstructed a few decades ago, but according to the original plans of Le Corbusier.
  • Worth the trip, but make sure to take the bus up the hill!
  • This is a start point in the world's modern architecture and house building !
  • Interesting place
  • Part of the French pilgrimage for all architects. This building represented Corbusier's 5 point manifesto. Easily among the top 5 buildings of the twentieth century in terms of influence to this day.
